Have a question related to TAPMI Manipal ?

Hello saumya,

As you have secured 85 percentile in cat 2022 so let me tell you will most probably clear the cut off criteria but it's difficult to tell about your pi because pi totally depends on your personal attributes . You need to be strong at your communication skills.

As far as your grade is concerned it's a pretty decent score and you would get the full points for your 10th and 12th results.

Although various factors are considered while deciding the cut offs like number of vacant seats in college, previous years cut offs and difficulty level of the paper.

For more information you can check out the link given below-


Hope you are doing well.

Hello There!

You should definitely go for it!  90 percentile is the cut off for general pgdm. 85 plus is the cut off for bfs (since it is a new course) and HR programme. For engineers they will get a call if their percentile is within these respective brackets. But for conversion they should showcase a really good interview and extempore performance.  For non engineers a decent performance in the interview should make the conversion, provided they have good acads or tradable workex.

Good luck


Yes, PGDM courses are equivalent to MBA. The only difference between these is that mba exams are conducted by affiliated University and PGDM Istitutions are authorized by AICTE to conduct the exams.

In simple words, MBA is like an older version for masters in Management and PGDM is the latest version. It would be better to go for PGDM as it not only sounds better but also is much more industry relevant and practical for jobs.

I hope this helps,

All the best.
